Suckling Pig at ESK
A gaggle of us was at Eastern Standard on Friday night for more cocktails than any one person needs on a given night. We noticed that the Saturday dinner special was suckling pig so Heathermb and I went back again just for that on Saturday and oh how glad we were that we did. We started out by splitting the ravioli appetizer of artichoke/blue cheese ravioli which was quite tasty. The star of the night however was the confit of suckling pig that we went for. It was decadent, cripy skin on the outside, the perfect layer of fat underneath and melt in your mouth meat under it all. We also tried the new side dish of potato croquettes with camembert which were really good though I have to say, next to the pig, they weren't as heavenly as I'm sure they really are next to anything else on the menu. The pig made the ESK double down well worth it.
